Show bands and Las Vegas weddings are a great match waiting for bridal couples! Las Vegas bridal couples are having their weddings where the great cover groups perform for corporate events. True, the 2007-2008 housing crash took a lot of bridal couples out of the band-hiring market but that was ten long years ago and bridal couples are once again flush with cash and many can afford quality dance groups for their receptions.
Nothing is more important at a wedding than the reception band!
Reception bands are THE most important part of a reception. If good or really good, they will keep guests on the dance floor and waiting for the band to come back from their breaks. I’ve seen it! I saw it years ago in San Francisco at a corporate event of mostly 22-to-38-year-olds. A DLE show band–The KS Show Band 13-piece–played TWO overtime sets and had the young guests waiting on the dance floor for the Band to return from each break! If the reception band is successful, the wedding itself will be successful and remembered for many years.
Starting at $13,000 (which includes sound), DLE show bands are tops and are affordable!
Let’s talk price. Four, wonderfully-talented DLE show bands will drive into Las Vegas for events and weddings. I wrote about that last month here. A fifth cover band not seen on the site, The DLE Las Vegas Show Band, is a very high energy 6-piece without horns and is based in Las Vegas. They are terrific at weddings! These groups in Las Vegas start at $10,000 and go up. Sound is extra with these groups and sound rental can go as high as $3,000. That brings the total to approximately $13,000. Will Las Vegas bridal couples pay $13,000 for a great band to play for 4 hours at their reception? I believe they will.
The deposit to contract a DLE band is 50%, so if the wedding is a year away, the bridal couple doesn’t need to pay the remainder until the wedding itself, prior to start time.
Once the Band is booked, bridal couples can offer a “do not play” list to the bandleader through me or direct.
The bottom line is…
The bottom line is…DLE has THE best bands in the U.S. and has the videos to prove it. Check out our videos and you’ll agree! All DLE groups travel anywhere in the U.S. as well as internationally.
